The hyperthermophile Pyrococcus furiosus catalyses the hydrogenation of a broad range of carboxylic acids selectively to the corresponding primary alcohols. Other functional groups such as isolated C=C-double bonds are not touched. The chemoselectivity of the carboxylate reduction may be directed towards aldehydes by simple medium engineering.
